The Springfield XD line is a fairly popular one and the single-stack XD-S is a favorite because it is highly concealable. The XD-S has a 3.3-inch barrel, a length of 6.3 inches, and a height of 4.4 inches with the flush magazine. It’s chambered in 9mm and has a 7 +1 capacity.
So instead of talking about this specific model and such, let’s take a detour. One of the reasons many people say they won’t carry a 1911 or a revolver is capacity. Cool story, but countless concealed carry guns like this XD-S don’t have an edge for capacity at all.
So for those people who specifically gripe about capacity, is it about capacity or is it really about the platform?
